I.8.13 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking north from entrance, along west side of courtyard. According to Jashemski, this entrance led directly into a covered passageway. This passageway enclosed the courtyard at the front of the house, on the west and north side. 
In the north-west corner of the passageway, there was a large lararium. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.43)  According to Della Corte, found written on the lararium were the names of two, perhaps dependants or family of Granio – Diadumenus (and) [D]iopha[ntus]    [CIL IV 7296]   See Della Corte, M., 1965.  Case ed Abitanti di Pompei. Napoli: Fausto Fiorentino. (p.327)

According to another book, it translated as -
“On July fifteenth I pawned earrings to Faustilla for 2 denarii (equivalent to 32 asses). From this amount, she deducted one-thirtieth as interest for the monthly usury of one as”     [CIL IV 8203]

The other book describes it as another graffito found in the same room but written just a few days earlier on July 4th.
This time Faustilla received another bitter pledge, this time a cape with a hood.
